Since me and my beloved missed having a picnic, we decided to visit the La Mesa Eco Park once again. We chose the La Mesa Eco Park because it has a swimming pool and my beloved want to go to a "resort."
If you want a detailed about La Mesa Eco Park, please visit my first post about La Mesa Eco Park.
Nothing changed inside La Mesa Eco Park, as compared to our first visit. La Mesa Eco Park still has the same picnic grounds and same attractions like the swimming pool, boat rides and paintball grounds. The only difference is that it is less crowded as compared to our first visit. It is a weekday, when we visited La Mesa Eco Park, that's why it is not crowded.
Because it is not crowded, we have no problem in finding a good spot to stay. The only problem is that the swimming pool was closed, as was the other attractions like the boat ride. It seems like those attractions are just open during the weekends and holidays. My beloved is a bit disappointed with it. So if you intend to swim or boat ride, then don't visit La Mesa Eco Park during weekdays.
So we just enjoyed eating our baon (packed foods) under the shade trees of La Mesa Eco Park. Too bad that I did not took photo of our meal which is a whole Andoks Lechon Manok (roasted chicken) and rice, which we ate with bare hands.
We first settled in a bahay kubo inspired booths inside La Mesa Eco Park but somebody warned us that we have to pay 500 to use those booths. Because we are a penniless couple we left the booth and looked on a good but fee-less spot. So if you are poor like us, I suggest that you stay away from those booths and just keep on the grass.

We enjoyed the afternoon inside La Mesa Eco Park and I like it when it is not crowded.
